Library News During Lockdown

Despite not being in school our students are still reading and making use of the materials available in the Library Resources area in their Google classroom.

Resources in this virtual classroom are updated regularly and include access to ‘myOn’ – an online Accelerated Reader (AR) catalogue which has over 7000 AR books for students to read as well as daily student friendly interactive news articles. To search for a book, simply search in order of genre or reading level (there’s a step by step tutorial on how to access this resource and search in the google classroom) and when the book is finished students take an online test. Those who score 90% or more are entered into the Accelerated Reader wall of fame module prize draw.  Even better – all who take a test are now awarded class chart points.

Those who are reading books which are not on the online portal can still earn points by searching for and taking a test to earn AR rewards.
